Will be set for all children on a Friday, and is due back the following Wednesday. As a minimum, this will include a home reader, maths task and GAPS/basic skills task (phonics in R or year 1). Spellings are to be given out on a Monday, in line with separate procedures, with a half termly test. There will be a further, topic based homework task, on a fortnightly or unit basis; either a ‘design and make’ or ‘research and present’ project based on the creative curriculum.
There will be a Thursday lunchtime homework club, for KS2 pupils only, to provide children with up to 30 minutes support to complete their homework.
Home readers will be changed as needed, at least twice weekly in FS and KS1, and at least weekly in key stage 2 where children are still following the school reading scheme. To facilitate this, a book change box is located in every classrooms.
